Default RE: UT-160 turbine? Feedback please?

Wow Christian, you do very nice work.

It looks like you are experimenting with 2-stage vs. helical diffusers. Is the engine based on a helical diffuser or is that your own work, since the one on the CNC looks like a 2-stage? Interesting that the floor of the primary vanes is flat, where is use to be a small taper on the KJ's and all the derivatives I've taken apart over the years. The diffuser and combustion chamber design share a number of features with engines I've seen apart before.

When do you expect to be running it? Any time soon?
